Crying Tap

2009-12-16 16:23 - 0 Comments

There is not enough fresh water on this planet. There are countries without enough water to drink.
Through this design I want to spread the Save Water message.

Whenever people turn on the tap and water flows more than 3 seconds , a crying baby sound starts and goes on increasing till they turn off the tap.
They can see a Crying Emoticon on the tap which says " There is not enough fresh water on Earth ".

This is a funny way to spread the message which needs a lot of attention and make people use sufficient water but not waste.

PROBLEM: The majority of Junior High students and High School students too, hate that sometimes you forget your combination or maybe your lock doesn’t work very well and gets stuck all times. Well is time for that to stop. We deserve to have fun when we want to open our locks

Garage Concert

2009-12-15 22:07 - 0 Comments

I made 15 benches of restwood costumized for the ramp of a parking garage. I got the key from the owner, gave a presentation to the audience and opened the 'theatrical curtain'......and a jazzband was playing. Because of the sound of a saxophone, a guitar and a trombone people came to sit in my theater.
Peoples Reactions:
- French Ryanair travellers: 'C'est impossible....how great, can we sit here?!'
- Audience: 'We want more!'
- Jazzband: 'We were honored to play in this garage, you can call us for the next one!'

Air moves around us everyday and every breath we take flows through the atmosphere unseen. The Fun«Charger transforms the wind around us into immediately accessible electricity. In locations with dynamic air movement, like a subway station, the Fun«Charger encourages people to play with its moving parts. There is an array of colorful fins that spin with gusts of air. This rotational energy is then converted into electricity in front of spectators’ eyes. The Fun«Charger is an interactive experience that invites people to watch their breath generate energy.

Dog The Dryer

When it is raining, most of the big scale shopping malls would place an "umbrella plastic bag stand" at the entrances, prevent the wet umbrellas bring the water to make the floor slippery. Even it would prevent accidents, but it produces loads of plastic bags in a very short time when the customers leave the mall.

Instead we can use Dog the dryer!
Bigger umbrella can use a bigger size dog.
Smaller dog for a rather short umbrella.
Just simply place the wet umbrella into the dog body,
grab the tail of th dog, then,

Race to the top!

Stairs nowadays are usually accompanied by adjacent escalators/elevators. They're mostly intended for the disabled though many have adopted the 'why walk when you can ride' mentality. Well let's give them a reason to exercise. Have a big red button which is to be pressed at the bottom of the staircase and another similar one at the top (people love pushing buttons, especially when they don't know its function). The button at the bottom activates a hidden stopwatch and the button on top stops the stopwatch. An LED display will show the final time of the persons hike up the stairs.

The Communication Station

My 82 year old mother will never own a laptop or a cellphone, but she does have a television. The only technology most households on earth have in common is television. There should be a TV network devoted to sending and receiving messages and this would be called the Communication Station.

Here's how it would work:

- Grandma is watching the Nightly News. Suddenly a flashing envelope appears in the corner of the screen.
- Using the special remote control she received when she signed up for the Communication Station, she clicks on the envelope to open it.

Downtown, there are many public places which have become so famous that they people use them as meeting spots. No problem so far. Every person who come here is waiting and doing things in order to make minutes pass. There is also no problem in the fact that the main activities people do while waiting are chewing gum and smoking cigarettes.

On the cities huge traffic jam is very common, drivers have to wait long periods of time on their cars without being able to move, this causes a lot of stress that isn't healthy for the driver and the passengers. In fact is a period of time that they must wait, but what if we could change this situation, what if we could find a solution to this problem that affects people all over the world, people that have to face this problem on a daily basis.
What if they can move forward in spite of the cars, what if they can do it virtually, maybe playing a driving game!

Most airports provide an automatic walkway for people to either rest as they head towards their gate or get there a bit quicker when walking. Unfortunately, these too require the use of much electricity by keeping them running all day, every day. As someone who is interested in other languages myself, I believe that there are many people out there who are as well and would take the no-walkway route to hear some phrases in different languages.

People are crossing the streets and ignoring the traffic lights every day. Why? Maybe they don't have much time, they don't care or they just don't want to wait. Probably because it's no fun to wait. But what if there is a fun way to wait? This is where the "concert-traffic-light" comes in. In front of a traffic light there is a floor sticker with electrical sensors underneath. Each sensor stands for a position in an orchestra, e.g. a violin. By standing on one sensor this particular instrument begins to play.

On average, one person uses 166 disposable plastic water bottles each year. The consumption of disposable plastic bottles places enormous strain on our environment and only 90% of these water bottles are recycled. Chemicals in disposable plastic bottles are also toxic to human health but many people are hesitant to use drinking fountains because they are uncertain of the water quality. However, in a number of countries across Europe and the US, there are more regulations governing the quality of tap water than bottled water.

You throw your garbage in a bin and you hear a voice coming from inside: -Thank you and have a nice day. or some sounds like pig is eating your garbage. But people would get more surprised if two bins can make a real conversation. Can you imagine two bins in a short distance. Suddenly a voice coming from inside: -This town is full of nice people only today this is the 50th man coming tome. And there is a voice from the other bin: -Don't be show off my friend only for last hour I collect more garbage than you.

How do we get people to go outside and walk even though it's dark and cold? What you need is light and joy, and we could achieve this by making a game and sound machine. Pressing the button starts a game where you have to put out as many lights as possible along a given path. The lamps are in the ground and are put out when someone stands on them. Whoever puts out most lights wins! Submitted by Maja Petersson

This game makes commuting and waiting for trains a fun and stimulating experience. Three huge numbers are painted or pasted on the subway platforms, however not on one surface but several different ones on many levels of depth. The objective of the game is to find the viewpoint from where the color fields makes out a number. Should you stand at the wrong place the fields are incomprehensible. Once you've found the viewpoint where the number is visible you can find a plaque on the floor or closest wall with two small numbers.

A pyramid with 3 segments n line (or more if other glass colours are required to be separated) for clear, brown, green. Above these is a series of tubes, rotating about a centre axle, spaced at equal intervals. These are ‘loaded’ at the bottom arc, and then rotated to fire in the hole position at the top by a ship’s wheel. You 'load' glass into the tube. The wheel is then used to rotate it upright to the highest position over a protected hole in the container below.

Gaming safety belt

Could we encourage more people to fasten their safety belt by making it fun to do? When people travel by car or a plane, they usually want to kill time by playing some games or listening to music. Only after you fasten your safety belt correctly is it possible for you to listen to music or enjoy any entertainment.

The society needs to develop a habit of throwing away the trash and for that we must teach to the children the importance of throwing away the trash in the right place to have a better future. That's why the action of throwing trash must be something fun and think it's a game. The children will get excited with the idea of throwing the garbage and even they will be eager to reach the nearest boat to start having fun. The trash bottle will be a friendly character, cute, funny and will smile at the moment you put your garbage in order to teach the children to care for the environment.
